Fans of fish like the gorgeous killi above should head to Redditch, Worcestershire, this Saturday December 7th, for the Midland Charity auction.

According to TA-Aquaculture:

Bids start at £3 and increase in 50p increments up to £10, where bid increments go up by £1.

Day membership (entrance fee) is £2, which all goes into the charity pot. This auction’s nominated charities are MacMillans Cancer and the Air Ambulance.

All fish should be bagged responsibly with one-third water and two-thirds air. Corners should be rounded and the bag should be inflated. Bags which leak or are considered not conducive to the well-being of the fish will be returned to the seller for rebagging.

The room will be heated as usual. Sellers should consider transporting fish in polystyrene boxes with a heat pack or hot-water vessel wrapped in a full newspaper.

We’re also assured: “Food will be provided. The usual December fare of pork & stuffing baps will be available. Tea, coffee and a full bar.”

The auction address:
Lodge Park Social Club
Wirehill Drive, Lodge Park, Redditch, Worcestershire
